SOURCE: I have a 2002 mazda
Can't solve, but, had the same problem. Replaced everything the codes indicated. Drove a couple of weeks and the transmission went. Third gear is gone.
Almost $ 2000.00 to chase the codes, now the transmission is going to cost $ 2,700.00 to rebuild.
Take car to a trans. shop before the transmission burns up and the rebuild will be less!!!!

Couple of things that could help is make sure your transmission fluids are at the proper level.
Also the another condition that may be caused by the molded seal portion of the direct clutch piston assembly delaminating from the steel housing eventually causing the outer lip of the piston seal to cut or tear. This cut or tear prevents the direct clutch piston assembly from applying causing the loss of both third and fourth gear.
To correct the above condition, install a Tech 2 to the vehicle and command third gear. If third gear does not exist, proceed with an inspection of the direct clutch piston assembly for the cause listed above. If the direct clutch piston has a torn seal, replace it with a new piston that has been released to prevent this condition. Inspect and replace any other parts that show potential damage or quality concerns
With Transmissions it could be a simple to a complex repair , it also could be a
sprag assembly even.
Unfortunately to do this test you will have to seek a Transmission Professional to confirm. I am sure this is not what you wanted to hear but throwing parts at it hoping to correct the problem will only cost you more money.
